A milestone which has been in Desborough for more than 200 years is undergoing work to restore it to its former glory.

Work has started to renovate Desborough Cross, which will be carried out in three phases, starting with re-carving and painting the letters.

The next two phases will involve steam cleaning of the stone and repairs.
